Import form from another VB.NET Solution

I am an Access programmer that also programs in VB.NET.  I have a simple question.  In access you can import forms, reports, etc from other projects (mdbs).  Can you do the same in VB.NET?  I have a form I want to use that I have already made in a different VB.NET solution.  I can't figure out how to do that.  Quite frustrating for something that should be easy to do.

    1) Do you want to have the form in both solutions?
    2) If yes, you can link to the form
    3) If no, you can open the form from the other location, and it will be copied to the local project folder.
